We are really enjoying the fall season’s weather, the one that comes with a special smell in the air, as there are many seasonal dishes that we can’t wait to enjoy. Even when we might think pumpkins are everywhere, there are many chicken fall dishes and recipes we can enjoy before winter arrives. Here we are sharing a short list of some of our favorite ones, hoping you get inspired by them and decide to give them a try as the leaves keep turning orange.
Roast Chicken with Lemon and Herbs
Roast chicken is one of our all-time favorite dishes, but during fall, we like to mix the recipe quite a bit. The best way to get a new, interesting, and refreshing take on this classic is by adding a touch of lemon and herbs. It is quite simple to prepare and it results in an elegant dish to offer our guests. Besides, the lemon and herbs mix will help us get tender, juicy, and crispy meat that everyone will be able to enjoy every time.
Chicken, Cheese, and Penne Pasta Bake
When fall hits, temperatures start dropping, and the weather starts getting cooler than they were, and this might make us crave a hearty and filling dish. This is where a chicken, cheese, and Penne pasta bake comes into play. Adding some mushrooms and artichokes will give this bake an extra touch of texture and nutrition. Also, feel free to add your favorite vegetables, as well as mixing cheddar cheese with mozzarella to make it as tasty and cheesy as it gets.
Chicken Mushroom Soup
Soups are a great option for those days on which we start feeling the summer blues. However, since chicken soup tends to be a quite ordinary take on them, we should go for a warm and comforting chicken and mushroom soup instead. This will allow us to enjoy a healthy and delicious mix of ingredients such as diced chicken breasts, carrots, celery, and mushrooms. The secret to this soup’s creamy and velvety texture, though, is the result of adding some heavy cream right before we finish cooking it. Ideal for the colder days of the season.
Chicken and Bacon Puffy Pastry
If we are looking for an elegant and easy-to-make entrée to offer to our guests, we should go for a plate of chicken and bacon puffy pastries. Served for groups of six to eight people, we get a sophisticated and quite delicious mix of chicken, bacon, onion, and cream cheese, all in a flaky frozen puff pastry. If you want to save time without sacrificing taste, you can make the filling ahead on time, and then assemble and prepare the pastries right before your guests arrive.
Chicken Pot Pie
After having hosted a dinner party, chances are we will have some leftovers in our fridge, including chicken and vegetables. The best way to take advantage of those leftovers is by preparing a chicken pot pie. This dish will instantly give us a nice, warm, and fuzzy feeling of American fall that no other dish can provide. Feel free to add your favorite veggies and prepare to enjoy a classic dish that will deliver an amazing flavor and improve your culinary repertoire without a doubt.
